You all have my sympathy, but I am glad it stayed south. Here in Longmont, I think we got about 3-4 inches of snow. It is hard to tell as there was already snow on the ground. No wind to speak of. It is gone on its way east now, but it still overcast.
Happy Holidays,
Ken

The weather out side is frightful, but O so delightful!

Sorry about the highwinds, etc. in the Phoenix area. We are now getting hit with the snow in mid state Kansas. Right now its 4:30PM approx. 8 inches on the ground and still coming down. The high winds that you had in AZ is suppose to follow up the snow that is currently coming down. Should be lots of drifted shut roads in the near future. The snow right now is beautiful and just laying where is fell.

I have a daughter that lives in the Phoenix area. I need to call her and make sure all is well.

Hello All From Quartzsite;

We came through the storm O.K. but our Add A Room is history. We were up until 1:30 tying things down. Four other campers lost their tents. One ended up about 1/2 mile away in another part of La Posa Camping.

Had 2 trucks blow over on interstate and a few awnings bit the dust.

Everybody here feels the wind was in the 70 MPH range. Draws were running water but how much rain we got nobody knows.

See ya down the road.

We also never heard winds like this before in this house. I'm glad our Airstream is safely garaged in the back building. Brad, I'm glad your chicken coop is intact. It is the nicest coop we have seen. Our chickens seemed normal this morning.

Hey Bob... Sorry to hear about your Add-a-Room but glad you all made it through the storm OK... We thought about all you good folks up there in Q as we listened to the wind here. We didn't get hit too bad where we're located...but it was windy for sure...the wind chimes were going crazy!

Brad, if you need my chainsaw, let me know. I've been within a mile of a Force 4 tornado and the sound last night was eerily reminiscent. The dogs insisted on sleeping in the bedroom instead of the kitchen. At 2:00, the wind opened the locked doors out to the patio...didn't get much sleep. Watch out folks, coming to a town near you.

Thanks but we cut it up this afternoon. Got a lot of lumber and need to make a number of trips to the dump tomorrow.

I got a call yesterday from the fella bringing my boat from Maryland. He got as far as Nebraska, and he say the snow and wind was to horrible and unsafe to drive in. I told him OBVIOUSLY his safety comes before any boat. He said he's never seen winds like this. Kind of scared him. He then called me today to tell me after last night, he is stranded and his motel, so he is staying put till tomorrow.

You guys have some CRAZY weather there on the flats. Be safe!!

We lost one tree which of course ended up in the pool. What a mess, there must have been 1/4" of silt on the bottom of the pool. The tree is all cut up and curing for next year, too green to burn at Picacho unfortunately.

Ours will be too green for Picacho also. I do have other firewood for Picacho that has already seasoned a year or two. Looking forward to sitting around the campfire swapping stories.

Barry - one of the big logs has your name on it.

Well, Brad, I hope that log is for the fire and not some other purpose......
